    My sewing room is a total mess........

    Several women here have said in the past that my sewing room is to clean!!

    To do any work in so I mucked it up.......This whirlwind of messiness was after I made a couple of outfits for our grand daughters who live in Tulsa, Ok.

    Well it's a start. I admit I do need to practice the art of a messy room. .....lol I wonder if the local Vo-tech college has a course on it.

    My Dad was an Navy man, our rooms had to be ship shape. Saturday afternoon was room inspection after cleaning that morning. If something was out of place according to him.....It all went out into the hall and we started all over again.
    By everything...I mean beds dressers and everything in the closet. Some Saturdays 3 bedrooms full of stuff was in the hall. We live in a house that was the old Rectory for the Catholic church in town. The hall was huge....LOL

    It looks like a nice "workable" creative space!!

    It is, my husband was the one who designed my space. He built all the painted cabinets, my cutting table as well as the built in desk in the closet. And the shelf that my fabrics are on above the embroidery machine.

    Love your sewing room. If my sewing room looked like that I would consider it almost immaculate. You have a really talented hubby -- he did a great job on your sewing room.

    Thanks, he did remodeling before he retired. So I benefit from all his creative experience.
    And he gets custom made quilts and clothes. So it's a good trade off.

    Agreed. You can still see the floor. Now get in there, young lady, and mess it up some more!! Throw those scraps over your shoulder like on TV.

    That is not a messie room! (I do like your room) A truly messie room is one where you start to enter through the door by the lining room, stop, and decide to go through the dinning room, kitchen, and laundry room to try to get in through the mud room door. LOL Please do not ask me how I know about this! LOL

    last winter I spent every spare minute for two weeks getting my sewing 'stash' sorted and it was a pain but so glad now....shopping in my stash is really convenient, and being able to find exactly what I need when I need it makes for more creativity, I do not have to stop and search for something. Guess I have become a convert to organization.

    You have a great looking sewing room. It is not messy, would only take a few minutes to right it. I have to keep my sewing room neat as I share it with four cats. I don't want them laying on my stuff messing it up. Neat is the way to go.

    You have a nice amount of storage in there. Doesn't look too hard to get back in order. Looks like fun to me.

    I would but UPS doesn't ship cats. Kola usually keeps my sewing room tidy. Because she thinks it's her room.

    A messy work area drives me bonkers. I can honestly say I have never "lost" my sewing machine due to a messy room. Although I did "find" a stash of Reese's peanut butter cups in a drawer. !!!!
